Our 4th Annual "Vettes for Pets" Event Sunday, August 15th, starting out at the CNYSPCA
Also in the news,
Four Onondaga County Sheriffs late Sunday morning apprehended a Corvette gang after a lengthy chase that started out near the CNYSPCA on Molloy Rd. in Syracuse and headed to Northern Blvd. where the gang tried to lose the Sheriffs on a high speed chase.
When they realized that that wasn't working, they attempted to shake them by making several quick changes in direction and heading through the village of North Syracuse where they attempted to lose them in some heavy traffic, which also failed.
They then again tried to lose them with a couple of more quick turns onto Morgan Rd. which led to yet another high speed chase. The Sheriffs finally caught up to the gang where they were hiding out at the Home Team Pub on Rt. 57 in Liverpool.
No civilian casualties or accidents were reported during this incident.
